“A transitional justice strategy can contribute to defining how Libyan society will go forward, and lay the foundations for a new democratic society”, says a report by the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).
“Transitional Justice – Foundation for a New Libya”, released on 17 September 2012, provides an overview of the challenges facing transitional justice in Libya. It advocates the inclusion of truth-seeking in a comprehensive transitional justice strategy; recommends a victim-oriented approach in the Libyan transitional justice process; and calls for putting in place a prosecutorial strategy, including to end the continued detention of some 7000 persons without legal process.
The report recommends that Libya’s General National Congress and government commit to implementing a comprehensive transitional justice process within the next year.
